THE Funeral Coordinator from BBC Kiswahili Service, Zawadi Machibya, said that a journey to return the body of Fred Mtoi back to Dar es Salaam will commence on December 3, 2012 evening aboard British Airways.

Fred died in November 17, this year. "The journey will start tomorrow (Monday) aboard British Airways and the body is expected to arrive at Julius Nyerere International Airport the next day morning at 7:00 am," she said.

The Coordinator added that arrangements for the funeral will be held at his parents' home at Tabata Maduka Manne in Dar es Salaam while last prayers will be conducted at Tabata Kuu Lutheran Church from 1:00 pm, on Wednesday.

Mr Mtoi will be laid to rest at Kinondoni cemetery. Zawadi noted that they will always remember Fred for his humbleness and Charming behaviour saying that he was collaborating in different potential Radio Programmes which gained popularity especially those of arts, tradition and society in general which was motivated by his familiarity with East African people.

In his initial stages at the field of broadcasting, Fred started to broadcast with Radio Tanzania before he went to Europe for studies where he was studying for his masters of Digital Media in a certain University at London.
